Sorry to break the news to you Diesel, but they are not only different gauges (36" vs 56.5"), but they are drastically different scales. The K27 is 1:20.3 vs the diesel at 1:29. If the diesel were at 1:20.3 it would dwarf that K27

Diesel, my apologies, there was not intent to be demeaning. I also own a Bachmann K27 I purchased in 2008. I have since installed AirWire R/C and batteries, and Phoenix PB11 sound card. I have also done some mechanical mods to make it a better loco. If you are interested here is a link to the electronics upgrades Major K27 overhaul
